Research Office

We develop our position by strengthening our cooperation with finance, industry, the private and public sector.  The University offers its business environment an analytical basis for making business decisions, business strategy and policy development. We rely on our many years of experience and on international and national cooperation.

Additionally, the University uses a wide range of the opportunities that are offered by functioning in the heart of Upper Silesian, which is a highly urbanized region. The region is a kind of a laboratory for developing research and studies - also within interdisciplinary teams.  This is reflected in the implementation of a number of regional projects in cooperation with the business environment, where experts representing economic sciences are supported by experts representing technology and humanities.   

Our strength is an experienced research and teaching staff: more than 500 experts and academics. Every year, there are dozens of research projects implemented and young scientists are awarded prizes in prestigious competitions. The research results are not only focused on development of scientific publications and organising scientific conferences for representatives of science and business, but also expertise, analyses and reports for companies and public institutions.  

We offer a wide spectrum of research: macroeconomic processes, changes in the global economy, transformations in the Polish economy and the economies of other countries. The researches focus also on selected industries, markets and processes, including the service sector, labour market, market of consumer goods, management processes in companies and public institutions, finance, marketing, transport and logistics, environmental protection, information technology, innovation, and many others. We invite you to cooperate with us. The staff of our Research Office, and Research and Knowledge Transfer Centre, will assist you in the implementation of joint projects.
